Espejo, De Guzman cheer up down pal Bagunas

They might be in different parts of the world, but the bond remains the same.

Moments after another herculean effort by Bryan Bagunas for Oita Miyoshi went down the drain, the 23-year-old went to social media.

“Nakakapagod na,” tweeted Bagunas, who dropped 14 points for the Weisse Adler but still bowed to Toray in three sets, 22-25, 19-25, 20-19.

In eight games played, the 6-foot-5 outside spiker has been spectacular for Oita Miyoshi. He has averaged 11.13 points on a 49.7-percent attack rate.

However, wins have been elusive, as Oita Miyoshi dropped its 10th straight game.

Seeing their friend down, his fellow national team members Marck Espejo and Johnvic De Guzman quickly cheered their buddy up.

“Heads up idol! Laban lang!” said Espejo, himself battling his own war with Bani Jamra in Bahrain.

“Di baleng mapagod, pahinga lang ‘yan at magiging okay ka rin,” added national team captain De Guzman, who is playing for Spikers’ Turf team PLDT.

“Let’s go!”

Bagunas appreciated the replies of his friends.

Up next for Bagunas and Weisse Adler are Wolfdogs Nagoya on Saturday, November 21 at 12 noon.
